in the hot weather...refrigerators
 
maint item if you have the type with the fan and condenser coil on the bottom behind the kick panel good time to get in there and brush the dust off.from the back remove the cardboard cover clean out the condensate pan and wipe down the blades of the motor....it will work easier to maintain the frig/freezer.it is a heat source moving air and collects cat,hair dust bigtime...:thumbsup:

Agreed. I like to vacuum mine and then hit it with some compressed air (like computer duster). We don't even have a cat and it still cakes with dust...

which of course brings to mind the entire design of most Fridges.... why is the heat producing equipment below the cold.... doesnt heat rise... why not the compressor etc on top (like sub zero brand).... and of course there is less dust up in the air, compared to on the floor... does not make sense to me!!!!

Cubic inches make it sound bigger, kinda like rating torque in in-lbs vs ft-lbs :thumbup:

They should be tied to your VRF system anyway so all that waste heat is not ejected into the living space.

You ever try and reach stuff stored on top of a sub zero fridge?
